Hi Lili

You will not expect this song to stay with you. You will be wrong.

Song

Some good covers have been made, which is also kind of unexpected for a sappy song from a 1953 movie. One example:

Murder by Numbers

One of my favorite bands.

I think I can count on my fingers the number of solo acts that I like who came from bands I also like. And if you scoop out all the Beatles it’s reduced by half. But Sting is definitely on the shortlist.

Let’s Go

There’s no better way to end a great movie than this.

My Darling Clementine

Do you have any idea how hard it is to find an arrangement of this song that’s not totally cheesy? I’m not sure I succeeded.

I got this into the rotation because I have been thinking about M*A*S*H.

In season 5 of this series, there was an episode called “Movie Tonight” in which Col. Potter is so thrilled to get the camp a copy of this movie for their movie night. Then, of course, one thing after another humorously – and not so humorously – interferes with watching it straight through.

Finally they get to the end, and in the pleasant afterglow of a fine movie, wounded arrive on jeeps in the compound.

There’s a rumor that you, too, can see this movie here.

Grounded

I don’t know why this was not on the list before now, but of course this song is set to waltz time.

Why this song? Why now? Because yesterday was, of course, Groundhog Day.

If you haven’t watched this movie you need to. This and The Good Place. Learn how to be.
